I look back to that day four years ago when I decided to leave a very comfortable position with a company that I had been a part of for 10 plus years and truly can’t believe how far we have come. February is typically a month where most people see a landscaping company as one that is sitting around looking at weather forecasts hoping for snow. To us at Poseidon Ponds & Landscaping it is a very busy month filled with business planning, maintenance contract negotiations, new landscape project meetings, new landscape project estimates, home builder show prep, marketing strategies, etc.
This year we have decided to add a very special addition to our February, A Job Recruitment Event. What the heck is that you ask… Well since Poseidon Ponds & Landscaping has shown continued growth and since our project calendar is starting to fill up we have decided that we need more people to help us grow and continue our success. This event is designed to allow potential employee prospects to have an experience where they are able to learn who we are, where we have come from and where we are going. Unlike a simple advertisement they get a chance to sit down with us face to face and learn what the job and our company is all about before they submit an application. We feel that in today’s world it is very important to have a picture painted for you before you choose a path to take. It is impossible for us to express what a great company Poseidon Ponds & Landscaping is to work for in a job posting so why not host an event and prove it.
We have seen the power of creating a culture within the company where people are able to learn about what they do, contribute with their own creative minds and be part of a company that cares about their well being. Aquascape, Inc. has a philosophy that we feel is a model we aim to copy. Here is what they think, “Culture is a way of living that is most often associated with artistic and intellectual pursuits. It can be found in a variety of socio-environments: family, religion, education, sports teams, business and more. When used in business, culture becomes a powerful tool that can set a company apart from its competitors. Aquascape, Inc. has created an entrepreneurial culture that is creative, fun, healthy, innovative, competitive, dynamic and fast-paced.” Who doesn’t want that in a job?
